German Museum of Technology is the English name for “Deutsches Technikmuseum” in Berlin. In general, it covers everything when it comes to technique, be it the development of a computer or the progress of sewerage. From shipping to jewelry production, from aviation to telecommunications. If you happen to be in Berlin and are interested in technology, the German Museum of Technology is the perfect museum to plan a visit!
However, you should be aware that the museum is just huge and that just a few hours are definitely not enough time. Honestly, you could easily plan a whole day for the museum as it is so big. But admittedly, as everybody has different interests, it might be a good idea to inform oneself in advance where the most exciting themes are located.
In general, the history of shipping is presented in a very interesting and vivid way. Thousands of exhibits are to be found and admired.
Thus, absolutely perfect for indulging into adventures, fears and freedom when it comes to the sea.
Memorabilia, documents and large objects witness the last 200 years of German history of aviation.
When discovering this part of the museum, you will definitely get the feeling of travelling back in time for a while, especially when seeing old or even one of the first planes!
Railroad has always been the most popular topics of the museum.
Next to the history of railways and trains in general in Germany and in Berlin, the daily life of the people is shown. What I found great was the fact that you are able to walk under a locomotive!
The discovery and exploration of electricity in the 18th and 19th century lead to inventions like telephone and radio.
In the German Museum of Technology, a broad overview about the inventions in this context are given. Worth having a look at!
This part of the exhibition does not only cover textile structures, but also machines, products as well as technique and art of textile technology.
Sometimes, there are even demonstrations about how textile technology worked!
These are just a few parts of the huge museum which we visited. However, there are many more topics and parts in the German Museum of Technology. These include sugar, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, energy engineering, movie and photography technology, brewery and many more!
